Season 6: Episode 18

Here is the final special episode straight from Davos 2022 of Season 6, Decoding Sustainable Development Goals. Our host, Lady Mariéme, went live from the prestigious event to feature girls from the Rwanda Coding Academy. The girls shared a powerful message with the world leaders. In addition to strengthening the voice of two young coders from Rwanda, she invited the Innovation Queen, Faraja Kotta Nyalandu. She is a Young Global Leader assigned by the World Economic Forum as well as the Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Shule Direct. In this episode, they discussed the silver lining of COVID-19. The pandemic showed the potential of technology and how access to digital means has improved the quality of life. Faraja also emphasized the need to work with policymakers for curriculum reforms while integrating future skills to thrive in the 21st century. Without SDG4, Quality Education, our world will not be able to reach its fullest potential.
